Default J truck running gear in a 715

I have a chance to pick up a '79 Cherokee with the 360/T-18/Dana 20 and I was wondering if anyone has ever done this swap into a 715 and how it turned out? All I have left of the original drivetrain is the T-98, so a complete swap seems in order and I like the idea of being able to keep it all jeep parts. Let me know if you guys have some expertice in this area, thanks Chris.

Thanks for the input, but I just found out last night that the cherokee is no longer for sale. Guess I will be looking for another donor J truck, thanks, Chris.
